Maken-Ki's 1st BD/DVD to Include Anime Bonus Extras
posted on by Egan Loo
The first Blu-ray Disc/DVD volume for the Maken-Ki! television anime series will include bonus anime extras when it ships on December 22. The bonus high-definition "Dokidoki! Maken-Ki! Himitsu no Kunren" short will run about 10 minutes long and feature the heroine Haruko Amaya in a secret one-on-one training session. The first of six volumes will also include a "Maken-Ki! Zenkai Version" of the main anime with scenes that did not air on television.
The limited first edition of the first volume will bundle a hugging pillow (dakimakura) cover of Haruko, as illustrated by original manga creator Hiromitsu Takeda. Other limited-edition extras include an exclusive case illustrated by Takeda and a jacket illustration by anime character designer Nobuteru Yuki.
Takeda's Maken-Ki! original manga centers around Takeru Ōyama, a boy enrolled in an elite school where the girls (and boys) fight with mysterious items called Maken. The student body includes the enigmatic girl Kodama, a girl named Inaho who calls herself Takeru's fiancée, and his childhood friend Haruko.
